-- Cheshire based management and leadership recruitment company McCarthy Recruitment is celebrating the incredible achievement of winning first place in the highly coveted UK Best Workplaces ™ Award (small business category) for the third year running. The Best Workplaces ™ Awards are run by the Great Place to Work ® Institute and are acknowledged to be the gold standard of employer awards, highlighting companies that are recognised for their excellence in creating exceptional, high-performing, high-trust workplaces.
Established in 2005, McCarthy Recruitment specialises in leadership and professional recruitment services. Having initially focused on leadership and managerial recruitment in the retail sector, the business has since expanded to recruit for other sectors including hospitality, manufacturing, warehousing and distribution. It also specialises in finding talent for head office vacancies including HR and buying and merchandising positions.
Founder and Chair Kate McCarthy-Booth comments, "Winning the Best Workplaces ™ Award is an incredible achievement and it's given us a massive boost during these difficult times. We were blown away when it sank in that we'd won it for the third year in a row! In March, McCarthy Recruitment celebrated its 15th birthday and it was a great opportunity to reflect on everything the company's achieved. Not long after that, the pandemic took hold and it's become a really tough time for many businesses out there. But the team is continuing to work closely with our clients when they need us and we're concentrating on helping them in every way we can. It's not just the clients we're supporting either. Many candidates need a helping hand at such a difficult and stressful time too. We know it can be really daunting, especially if they hadn't been planning to change jobs, so we're running free sessions to support anyone looking for a new role, covering any sector where help's needed."
Managing Director Ian McMullin says, "It would have been fantastic for the team to go along to accept the award in London, but not being able to do that certainly doesn't diminish what a brilliant accomplishment this is for the McCarthy team. I'm extremely proud of every single one of them – and now more than ever, their positive attitudes, flexibility and tenacity mean the world to us during this difficult time for everyone. Although we've had to furlough some of the team, we're focused on keeping going. We've always had fun together, so we're finding ways to do that online. It's really important that even though we're physically apart, we feel like we are together."
